More power and that great Harley sound - here's how
A Stage One upgrade is shorthand for improving the air and fuel flow and mix right through your engine, from filter to exhaust. By adding the right performance parts, tuning the fuelling professionally and adding a more efficient exhaust system, you can increase the amount and speed of the combustible mix of air and fuel – the best way to generate more power and torque. An upgraded, free-flowing air filter and complementary exhaust will make a difference you can really feel. The air intake and exhaust systems are matched and calibrated to improve air flow – usually, no engine modifications are required.
Why do it?
1. You’ll get more horsepower and acceleration will be far sharper and quicker. Your throttle response will be greatly improved.
2. Enhanced exhaust systems take away the waste gases far faster and more efficiently, thus speeding up the through-put of air and fuel.
3. A Stage One upgrade should improve your mpg.
4. Did we mention that iconic Harley sound from the pipes?

Note – if your garage suggests simply getting more air into the process by drilling holes in the filter back plate, forget it. You need to get the air right the way through the engine, not just more air into the filter.
